Chips?

I know chips aren't exactly paleo, but I love eating chips on the side sometimes. I know its breaking the rule, but are there any 'healthy' chips I can at least consider?

As soon as you can find some that are fresh, natural, and unprocessed. Let me know when you do.

For me, my sub for chips has been jerky (just dried meat) and/or nuts.

Re: Chips?

Holy hell. Read this thread, then come back.

http://www.board.crossfit.com/showthread.php?t=54778 (WFS)

If you want a paleo subsititution, go for sweet potato chips or banana chips. Who cares if you're "paleo" anyways? You either do it, or you don't... you can't make all these exceptions and try to call it "paleo".

Re: Chips?

I know without even looking that the link that Bo provided is going to be Katherine's "do or do not" thread. Perfect.

Re: Chips?

Ouch - Katherine's post was a smack on my face. I am glad it was, a life lesson to learn from it.

Banana chips sound great... Merci boucoup!

Okay, no more whining for me. Thanks.

I don't know if they have a Trader Joes in the district, but they have some delicious banana chips. Slightly salty... similar texture to potato chips

Yeah, but (in my mind at least) once they're fried, they're processed.

Re: Chips?

What about kettle chips like Covered Bridge? (such a plug for a local product, i know). Or do you not have these where your from? You're all missing out if it's just a Maritimer thing. Also I would suggest if you do eat chips go for the "lightly salted" or unsalted varieties, at least you can cut down sodium intake. Better than nothing.
